Sorry for the LONG DELAY!
Lost Highway Vs. The Thin Red Line
Directed by David Lynch was the first thing I knew about this movie. In other words I knew that i was going to be thrown around a few times in Lynch's brain twister. This movie, first of all, was extremely creepy. The videos showing up at his doorstep with no proof of who it was. The investigators not knowing what was causing the crime. This whole movie was full of suspense. The Good looking decent man whom Fred meets at the party:
To be quite honest, this movie was something that I was not expecting to be as good as it was. It kept me entertained and wanting to find more and more about all the characters. I thought it was a greats twist when Fred morphs into Pete, and when this happened I was hooked more into the movie. What did the morph mean? maybe a second chance in life. This movie reminded me a lot of a history of violence (living a second life) etc. I really enjoyed this whole movie, and it was something i didn't have to pause to take a break from. The Thin Red Line
Usually, I hate War movies because they don't hook me. the last war movie I enjoyed a lot was full metal jacket and it was because it was funny (at times) and had great music. This movie was 3 hours long, and to be honest they did not feel like 3 short hours. Things that I want to point out about this movie is the shots of nature. There seem to be a lot of focus on random inanimate objects, which i found to be quite interesting. This movie was very interesting, and I find the reason for that to be because of the solid cast it has. I think John Cusack did a marvelous job throughout the whole movie. I loved the way Malick was able to show the relations between the soldiers and the foreigners, because most movies tend to miss important details like that. This movie had its up and downs for me.
I enjoyed both films, and im sure i would have picked either of them if they weren't going against each other. Seeing as I can only choose one, Lost Highway
will go on because it was a film I loved.
